Bangalore: Then and there the decisions and orders made by the Supreme Court of India are welcomed by the people. But in most of the cases, the public feel that the judgement given is not fair enough to the cause. On November 11, 2016, the Supreme Court imposed a ban on firing the crackers on Diwali occasion concerning the air pollution it will cause and have caused round the years.  The relief for this ban is on September 12, 2017.

 

Again now for this year, the Supreme Court has imposed ban on October 9, 2017 and relief is on November 1, 2017 which means that this ban on firecrackers sale in Delhi only stands till November 1. By this way for banning and relieving, the Supreme Court has managed to eliminate the firecrackers (to reduce the air pollution) from the Diwali occasion in Delhi, as it thought it is way too radical to eliminate it completely. It seems that taking gradual steps on this case might yield better results and cause “minimum hardships” to all concerned.




But to the contrary this ban has made the Hindus furious and the Supreme Court is facing the opposition from all ends of the Hindus. Recently the governor of Tripura state Tathagata Roy have also made his statements against this ban. “As a governor, I have every right to speak my mind if I feel the security of my country is at stake”, he said. Tathagata, who is a former BJP leader, tweeted in Hindi on the ban on the bursting of crackers on Diwali and the Janmashtami ritual of dahi handi, which had also come up in court.

 

He tweeted as, “Kabhi dahi handi, aaj patakha, kal ho sakta hai pradushan ka havala lekar mombatti aur award-waapsi gang Hinduon ki chita jalaney par bhi yachika dal dey”

 


 

“(One day it is dahi handi, today it is firecrackers; tomorrow the issue of pollution may well lead to a plea by the candle {holding} and award-waapsi gang on cremating Hindus),” he tweeted on Tuesday 10th October, 2017.

 

When he was questioned regarding his tweet and asked if he was not concerned about the air pollution in Delhi, for which he said he was aware of the situation, but argued that “Diwali happens only once a year.”




This is not the first time Roy is courting the controversy by raising voice in favour of the Hindus. A couple months ago, he made a statement saying, “The Hindu-Muslim problem won’t be solved without a Civil War” which he mentioned was quoted out from a 1946 diary entry made by Syama Prasad Mookerjee, who later founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh.

 

And his statements, “Overwhelming Hindu majority is ESSENTIAL to maintain a multi-religious society & secular state. But West Bengal is slipping.” On August 2015 he described those who attended the funeral of Mumbai blast convict Yakub Memon as “potential terrorists” who “ought to be kept under surveillance.” also sparked controversies in the air. He was constantly accused of triggering communal violence and was compelled to refrain from “tweeting irresponsibly”. According to an Indian Express report, some even called for his sacking and arrest. But later he clarified that he was merely “quoting, not advocating”.

 

It is very obvious that he is very proactive in social media especially in the cases where quoting against the Hindus and Hindu rituals happens, as we can infer from his statement, “I am not secular, I am a Hindu”
